Against the Crowd Blogathon 2016: Day 1 Recap


Day 1 of the Against the Crowd Blogathon 2016 is in the books. A number of you got us off to a great start. The bloggers who participated so far have gone out on a limb for us. I really appreciate that. Please click on the links below to the various entries that came in.

Rambling Films loves up on a film no one loves despite it's great cast, but gives none to a new animated classic.

Hitchcock's World gives his takes on a pair of Steven Spielberg movies.

Big Screen, Small Words doesn't think a beloved superhero flick is all that special, but quite enjoys an Adam Sandler comedy.

Carly Hearts Movies is worried about getting hate mail for her selections.

Surrender to the Void lets us know why an Oscar winning film is crap, especially compared to a film starring Christopher Lambert.

Thoughts All Sorts explains why ratings don't mean a thing.

Joel65913  props up one "American" and takes down another.


Thanks to everyone above for taking time out of your busy lives to take part in this little project. I'm looking forward to more entries as we'll be doing this all the way through Friday, August 26th. Once you post yours, you can leave a link in the comments section of this post, the announcement post on this site, or on the site of my co-host KG's Movie Rants. You can also tweet it to either of us @w_ott3 or @KGsMovieRants1.

  6. This is a really cool blogathon. I haven't done one before. But, I don't get it - is it just for blogspot people or anyone can participate? Thanks, I am very interested in posting my entries too.
